In this final round, every answer contains the letters A-H-A in consecutive order, somewhere in the answer. For example, if the clue was, "Ashton Kutcher replaced Charlie Sheen on this CBS sitcom," the answer would be, "Two and A HAlf Men."
It turns out that the Tiny Desk Contest isn't the only competition Tank and the Bangas vocalist Jelly Joseph has participated in. Jelly tells us about making Jennifer Lopez tear up on "American Idol," then we invite her to play a round of Wisdom of the Crowd. Jelly has to determine whose wisdom she trusts more: a recent live audience we polled or, the wisdom of puzzle guru Art Chung.
Then the band joins her onstage to play their song "Walmart."
In this game, contestants help Ophira remember what she ate and where she ate it. The trick is, wherever she goes, she only eats foods that rhyme with her geographic location. For instance, if Ophira said, "I ate a spiral-cut Honeybaked while getting baked in the capital of the Netherlands," the answer would be, "You ate ham in Amsterdam."
Every answer in this final round will contain the first name of a character from the TV show "Friends." And if you've never seen "Friends"... we'll be there for you — for moral support. But not for hints.
In honor of our long flight from Brooklyn to Phoenix, this final round is called, "Are We There Yet?" Every answer contains something that sounds like a method of transportation. For example, if we said, "This astronomer was the original narrator of the science show, 'Cosmos,'" you'd answer "Carl Sagan..." which has "car" in it.
Inspired by the 1980s band from Phoenix, Arizona, house musician Jonathan Coulton takes us under his wing for the Mr. Mister parody the world's been waiting for! We rewrote their hit song "Broken Wings" to be about things...with wings.
Philadelphia is where America's Founding Fathers wrote The Constitution, and to celebrate that, we made a final round where every answer contains either the word RED, WHITE or BLUE. For example, if we said, "Fairy tale character who just wanted to visit her grandma," you'd answer, "Little Red Riding Hood."
To honor Philadelphia's iconic symbol of freedom that doesn't ring anymore, the Liberty Bell, contestants hear audio clues about people and things that have "bell" in the name and ring in to guess what--or who--they're about!
